Entrepreneurship and innovation will be celebrated HUB-style as aspiring business moguls from Boston-metro’s top public and private educational institutions gather for the 3rd annual Beantown Throwdown, hosted by the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge.
Now in its 3rd year, the Beantown Throwdown will begin with a fireside chat about startups and entrepreneurship led by Scott Kirsner, the Boston Globe’s Innovation Economy columnist and founder of Innovation Leader, followed by the student pitches. #HUBweek
Participating Schools include:
• Boston University
• Boston College
• Northeastern University
• UMass Lowell
After the student presentations, winners will be determined by audience vote using play money to “invest” in the most exceptional ideas. More than 200 executives from public and private companies, angel and venture investors, members of the media, top service providers, students and others are expected to be in attendance. In addition to market exposure, winning teams will receive a range of prizes to help launch and build their companies.
This event is hosted by MIT Enterprise Forum as part of #HUBweek.
